TMR - Colours ....

.... Hello!  Thanks so much for stopping by.  It's time for our new challenge at The Male Room - TMR#29.  We have a colour challenge for you - MONOCHROMATIC - you get to pick the colour. As always, your project must have a masculine style.  I've made an uber clean and simple card, it's also a smallish card measuring only 5" × 3½":

Stamps: Uniko - Simply Said, Background Builders Round in Circles
Inks: Kaleidacolor - Blue Breeze
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Stampin' Up DP - Pacific Point


I used the sketch from this week's CAS Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#160 for the layout, adapting it a bit for a rectangle.  I decided to pick shades of blue for my card.  As soon as I saw the sketch I knew I wanted to use these lovely grungy circles.  I started by stamping the word Awesome in the middle of the card - I used the MISTI to position the image.  I then added the smaller sentiments above and below.  I finished by stamping the circles.  I really like Kaleidacolor pads - they make monochromatic schemes so easy!  On the inside I cut a mat layer of blue design paper and added a pattern up the side of the white card.
